First Team Star
Jul 7, 2016, 7:57 PM
Harrogate League loses Rawdon Athletic (to West Yks Lge), Wetherby Athletic 'A' (probably to West Yorks lge as their reserves), Bramham (York League) plus Ripon Red Arrows (presumed folded) & Westbrook YMCA reserves. It gains Thirsk Falcons (from Teeside league, replacing their reserves - who move down to div2), Ripon City reserves (who withdrew from the West Yorks lge last season) and two teams from the Wensleydale League: Bedale Town reserves and Richmond Town reserves. That's worrying for the Wensleydale League which could be down to 10 clubs.
Craven League loses Grindleton to the East Lancs league (although both their sides failed to complete last season), Embsay and Ingrow & Worth Valley (both teams). Like the Harrogate league, no newly formed clubs have joined but several reserve teams are joining: Silsden White Star. Settle united (third team), Bradley, Earby Town, Salts (fourth team),
